WWII Japanese Army Type 90 Combat Helmet in Very Good Condition
Here we have an un-cleaned woodwork find which recently was discovered in Japan. It is complete with no missing parts. The leather liner is firmly attached to the shell. The central cord and three cushions inside the pocket of each flap are present. Though frayed in part, the chinstrap appears to be in full length. The shell surface is peppered with light surface rust, probably due to its postwar storage condition. The helmet was issued to a soldier but. The soldier’s sir name is “Morikawa” (森川）which appears on the front and the
backside of the leather flap of the liner. The helmet size is small as you can find a perforated kanji character “小” (meaning “small”) on the rear end of the leather liner band. More than 90% of the late war olive drab paint remains. This helmet is one of the nicest-conditioned late war examples we ever had. A “small” size helmet in this condition is super rare. It’s ten times harder to find than a “large” helmet, which is common. Besides the “small” size Japanese helmet is about 55cm-56cm and not really small. It can easily fit on a mannequin head.
Don’t miss this super rare near mint “small” size helmet. Otherwise, you will have to wait another 10 years!!
